    Great Officiant

    Dave was really on point with everything, telling us the whole process and what information he needed. Very responsive through email leading up to the event. As well during the ceremony he was funny and inviting which made the experience much more enjoyable since he was having fun and everyone there was as well.

    Large Personality in a Compact Size

    Weddings and elopements serious, but should also be fun. Rev Dave did both. He was such a joy and I'm blessed to have had him marry me to my husband. He was very funny but also took his position seriously. I had assumed the Reverend I got for my elopement would be super serious and just there to do the job. Having Rev Dave there made it seem like he was an old friend and made my special day just that much better.

    Awesome last minute Covid stand-in

    Our original officient cancelled on us the night before our wedding because of a death in his family, but he asked Rev. Dave to stand in for him super last minute. Rev. Dave did a great job, even though he had less than 24 hours to prepare. His service was funny and light hearted, which was exactly what we were going for. Worked perfectly for our tiny, 10 person covid-times wedding with Zoomed in friends and extended family.

    Reverend Dave is amazing!

    My husband and I were forced to postpone our large formal wedding reception and Indian ceremony from May 2020 to March 2021 due to the pandemic and quarantine. We were so upset but fortunately we found Reverend Dave on the WeddingWire and he was able to perform an amazing intimate ceremony at home so that we could still get married this year!! Not only were the ceremony and vows a perfect fit but he was so personable and hilarious. All of our guests commented on how much they loved his thoughtful words during the ceremony! We would absolutely recommend him to everyone!! Thank you so very much for making our intimate wedding so incredibly special! We will remember this day forever :)

    Wonderful Virtual Zoom Wedding Experience

    I'm Chinese and my husband is American-Canadian, we were looking for a Wedding officiant on WeddingWire who can help us hosting a virtual wedding so that we can get together our family and friends from all over the world. We were impressed by Rev. Dave's WeddingWire profile because he had married couples from various cultural backgrounds. After redirecting his website, we were excited to spot there's a very obvious Virtual Wedding banner on the homepage. After watching some Virtual Wedding video, we decided he is the very Wedding Officiant we want to be married by.
    During the preparation for the wedding, Rev. Dave is very helpful and offers us a lot of flexibility. The ceremony was very wonderful and unforgettable.
    We're definitely going to reach out to Rev. Dave to marry us again in our in-person wedding after the pandemic is over in near future.

    Reverend Dave made our special day unforgettable and stress free!

    Where do I even start? Reverend Dave is awesome! We decided to go with the Unforgettable Package with Reverend Dave and it was definitely worth it! Dave spent a lot of time getting to know us and our love story, which showed when he recited it on our wedding day. After the ceremony, our family and parents kept saying what an amazing job he did and how he had them laughing throughout the ceremony! They really enjoyed hearing our special story.

    Not to mention Dave worked with us to secure a new date when we had to cancel our original date due to COVID. We are very thankful for this and how flexible he was.

    Overall we would definitely recommend Reverend Dave!

    You can’t get any better than Dave!

    Dave was all we could’ve ever asked for and then some. The planning process was smooth and painless, along with the rehearsal. I love his sense of humor and that he was able to make our ceremony FUN! There were many laughs and lots of love and I couldn’t have imagined getting married by anyone other than Dave. He really goes above and beyond what I imagine anyone’s expectations could be. Being that at the time of our wedding Covid-19 was beginning to peak in our area, times were tough, tense and concerning, but our ceremony was such a great time, you didn’t have time to think about whatever else was going on in the world.

    The best decision we made!

    Rev Dave is the absolute best! He really takes the time to get to know you and personalize your ceremony to share your love story with your guests. We have had multiple people since our wedding day tell us how much they enjoyed our ceremony and how funny Rev Dave was! In a time with so many changes/uncertainties, Rev Dave was always very easy to work with and accommodating when it came to needing to reschedule our original date. We are extremely grateful we found Rev Dave and couldn't have imagined our day without him!!

    Saved the day!

    Rev Dave came to our rescue when we had to adjust our wedding plans because of Covid. We had him booked for our wedding ceremony at a venue but changed our plans to a small back yard ceremony. Rev Dave helped us with processing our decision and worked with us seamlessly when we needed to change our plans. Our family had wonderful things to say about him after our day was done! You won’t regret having Rev Dave be apart of your big day!!

    Reverend Dave was fantastic!

    Rev Dave made our wedding day perfect from helping to identify a great location, calming nerves that moving pieces would all fall into place, and most of all made our ceremony beautiful, FUNny, meaningful, and made us feel like we’ve known him for years. Outstanding job, our guests thought he did a fantastic job too, everyone was commenting on how fun and love-filled our ceremony was. Lots & lots of laughter, a few happy tears, and all smiles from us!

    Awesome experience

    We had to replan our wedding within a week of our wedding date. Luckily, Rev Dave was available. He communicated well and helped us find the perfect place to get married in. Our families are kind of awkward, but he got everyone involved during our ceremony and made everyone laugh. With Covid causing us to reschedule our big church wedding, I’m so happy with how things turned out during our micro wedding. Definitely recommend Rev. Dave!

    Our Perfect Virtual Wedding

    We cannot say enough great things about Rev Dave! We opted for the virtual zoom wedding package due to the pandemic, and it was better than we could have ever imagined. Rev Dave is funny, professional, and he really takes the time to get to know the bride and groom before the ceremony. If you're looking to get married (virtually or in-person), Rev Dave is the best there is!
